Hunt Valley is Preferred Location

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz publicly thanked the leadership of McCormick and Company Incorporated, who announced that the company has selected a site in Baltimore County at Shawan and York Road in Hunt Valley as the preferred location for its new headquarters.

The decision keeps a total of 2,100 McCormick employees in Baltimore County at the firm’s corporate headquarters, a Technical Innovation Center and two manufacturing plants. About 900 of these employees will work at the new Hunt Valley campus, which will consolidate current operations from several Baltimore County locations in the Maryland I-83 corridor.

Top Economic Priority

“We are thrilled that McCormick has chosen to keep its corporate headquarters in Baltimore County,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “In every conversation I have had with Chairman and CEO Alan Wilson over the past several years, I made it very clear that McCormick is a valued part of our business community and that retaining their headquarters and operations in Baltimore County is a top economic development priority."

“We thank Director Will Anderson and our County Economic and Workforce Development team, Governor Hogan and DBED Secretary Mike Gill for working together to keep McCormick home,” added Kamenetz.

“We are very excited about our plans to relocate our headquarters to our preferred site in Hunt Valley. I'd like to thank Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz for his support and understanding of McCormick's vision for the future. We look forward to a continued partnership as we finalize the agreement over the next few months, and as we build, occupy and grow in our new headquarters over the next several years," said Alan Wilson, Chairman and CEO, McCormick & Company, Inc.

The rising cost of healthcare is one of the most important issues facing our county and nation.

I hope you had the opportunity to read my recent op-ed in the Baltimore Sun regarding Baltimore County’s efforts to provide healthcare and retirement benefits that are fair for its employees and sustainable for taxpayers. That same day, the Sun ran a story dealing with Anne Arundel County’s efforts to address this same issue.  I invite you to read both articles.
